I had not heard of the X-E camera, thanks, good to know they're continuing a fixed-focal lens model.
I like your clean interiors, well-lit, nice tonality. And the sunset of course has a great sky. The bridge photo seems to need something more, and the greens don't look, well, “green” enough! Maybe some magenta in there dulling the color?
Welcome to Leica S desire! The 70mm is an obvious place to start, and a versatile choice, relatively economical too. I had the advantage of a large Pentax 67 system so I could use those lenses while I considered what other S lenses I might want to get. I ended up with the 35mm Summarit and later the 100 Summicron.

I'll pick up the thread with some M8 (mostly) and M9 shots of interesting manikins… These are fullsize JPEGs.
M8, 50 Planar,…[Read more]
Ha! Well well, is this prophetic? I had to check LR5.5 myself and indeed it's listed. This may get interesting.
I've been using a 100mm f/4 Pentax and like this angle of view. But I expect an f/2 lens would be just a bit larger…
Great to hear the S2 is in high favor and helping you be creative! I'm fond of mine as well, and the new grip is helping keep a steady hold in the cold. I have a project going, but slowly until it warms up some.
